What to do

  • Preheat your oven at 180
  • Lightly butter a loaf tin and line with greaseproof paper.
  • Mash the ripe bananas in a large bowl until smooth.
  • Stir in melted butter.
  • add bicarbonate of soda, salt, sugar, beaten egg and vanilla extract.
  • Mix together.
  • Add flour and gently stir in. (add any optional toppings to the batter if you want)
  • Pour batter into the loaf tin (top with any optional toppings) and bake for approximately 1 hour.
  • You will know when it’s done if when you put a knife in the middle it comes out clean.
  • If the knife doesn’t come out clean just pop it back in the oven.
  • Top tip – Once cooled use a bread knife to slice your loaf, this stops it from crumbling!

Get the kids involved

Mason absolutely loves baking and I hope Ellis will too! Mason is nearly 4 and helps me to measure out ingredients, stir and waits patiently for the goodies to bake. But he’s also good at licking the bowl and eating the icing when we use it on some cakes. Sous-chef goals!! For more family recipes click here!
